Is it the way to encourage farmers?The talk around is about the Rytu Bandhu scheme introduced by Telangana and then Central government's scheme of Rs.6000/- per year as compensation to farmers having less than 5 acres of land. Babu says he is giving more than these two to the farmers in his state. Now the hot topic among all the political parties is how to attract farmers and get their votes. Nobody is interested in the welfare of the farmer or in making cultivation as a profitable profession.
Do you think it is the correct way of encouraging the farmers?
The younger generation should be made to get interested in cultivation. The farmers should be trained to use the latest technological advances to make their profession an interesting way. What are the ways to maintain the quantity and quality aspects of the production of food grains? No actions in this direction are seen anywhere.
The government should encourage cultivation also as an industry and they should also be given the needed technical help by using the services of the Scientists and engineers from institutes like ICAR etc. They should conduct classes in villages by deputing some experts and suggest the farmers' good methods to make cultivation a profitable profession.
Instead of that offering, some money may make the younger generation lazy and slowly the production of food grains will also get hampered I feel.
